New Patient Registration
The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area.
You can join the practice by bringing us your old medical card or by filling in a registration form which is available from the receptionists, you will need to have proof of your address i.e.,utility bill, driving licence.
As it takes a while for your old medical records to reach us, we may ask new patients to come to a new patient interview where we can get some background information, sort out any repeat prescriptions and form a plan of what the practice needs to organise for you.
Surgery Times For Registering: Tuesday-Friday 10am-5.30pm

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a Practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
Your Named GP
All Patients registered with the surgery will have been allocated a named accountable GP who will be responsible for your overall care. However, you can book appointments with any of the GPs at the surgery. If you have a preference to which GP you are allocated, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your requests. If you wish to know which GP has been allocated to you, please ask reception at your next visit.
